A lovely salad with fresh components, like Salanova lettuce or spinach leaves. You can also add cheese, bacon and nuts. Very tasty.


Cut core out of lettuce. Add lettuce leaves, spinach and rocket to colander – rinse thoroughly and allow to dry. Add sliced capsicum, cherry tomato and cucumber chunks and toss. Heat a little oil in a saucepan, add bacon, brown lightly then add pine nuts and sunflower seed mix, stir until lightly roasted . Take off heat, allow to cool. Serve salad mix onto individual plates, sprinkle bacon and nut mix over salad, add cheese over the top with the balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressing.
